Shabby Blue LOVE

In my last post I shared an old beat up hutch that my husband brought home for me - I had this amazing idea for the back panel on the hutch...but my idea didn't work out as planned. The wall paper I had planned to put on well I didn't have enough. Dang it! Hate when that happens.

My husband actually picked out the shabby blue color - I sanded and painted the whole thing in the same color. See how filthy the hutch was?
The detail was amazing - dont'cha think?

There were a few small repairs that needed to be made - like fixing one of the drawers because the face had broken off. I also added some new pulls to the smaller drawers
(be ready for photo overload)
so here it is finished...
It's a very light shabby blue color - I think it looks good and thinking back the paper would have been to busy.

You can see the new pulls on the smaller drawers...vintage metal detailed pulls - they show a little rust on them still...

Bottom drawers - using the old hardware

Fixed that top left small drawer - using wood glue turned out as good as new. See the drawer below

Here is a side view of the spindles - cool right?

Here is a close up of the bottom sides of the hutch.

I gotta tell you I am loving this piece. A lot. But because I already have a wonderful hutch in my kitchen I can't keep it - all though I think it would make a cool crafting hutch actually {wink wink}
If you are interested in owning this hutch just email me at I am selling it for 175.00 or best offer.
Happy Hump Day!
I am also linking up to the parties above.

A new Project

I wanted to share my newest project. My sweet husband brought this home for me about a month ago and its been sitting in the back yard...I wanted to make it amazing and so it sat while I tried to figure out the fun color scheme I wanted to use.
Isn't this piece needs a little TLC but the lines are cool and there are so many drawers  and a light that comes with it.
See the sweet details on the sides of the hutch? Awesome-sauce...
I wanted to do this in Coral and gold but I decided to try something different...I had three different cans of Sherwin Williams paint in 3 shades of blue...and see that there back piece well it came off so I was thinking maybe a cool paint treatment or some fun pattern painted on...

Can you see it? Well, I finally decided tonight at 7:25 p.m. that I would start painting and then I had the most brilliant idea...
But I'll share that with you tomorrow...Oh you'll love it---I hope!
